    In today's lesson you're going to learn some mild swearing. Cursing can be an excellent way to vent your frustration, and used correctly, can be very effective at getting your point across. In today's lesson we learn a curse word that you wouldn't usually associate with swearing and that is the term "thing" or 东西 (dong xi). Today we hear this word used in the context of two neighbours taking out their trash, only to find that one of them has made the other neighbours house messy with their trash bags. Listen to the heated argument, and after the lesson you'll be able to use this insult whenever someone crosses you.
